State Representative Josh Bonner (R-Fayetteville) was recently appointed by Speaker David Ralston (R-Blue Ridge) to serve as a member on the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Economic Development for the remainder of the 2019-2020 legislative term.

“I am grateful to be selected for such an important committee assignment,” said Rep. Bonner. “I look forward to working with my colleagues to ensure we produce a budget that reduces the tax burden on our citizens, while maintaining a high quality of service to our state.”

Rep. Bonner was appointed by Speaker Ralston to help bolster the membership of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Economic Development ahead of the 2020 legislative session.

Under the authority of the House Appropriations Committee, this subcommittee will specifically consider portions of the state budget that impact Georgia’s economic development.

The House Appropriations Committee is comprised of eight subcommittees that are tasked with drafting the state’s amended and general fiscal year budgets for Georgia’s state agencies and departments. The committee also hears legislation that has considerable impact on the state revenue or expenditures.

Representative Josh Bonner represents the citizens of District 72, which includes portions of Coweta and Fayette counties.

He was elected into the House of Representatives in 2016, and currently serves as Vice Chair of the Defense & Veterans Affairs Committee and Vice Chair of the Working Group on Creative Arts & Entertainment.

He also serves on the Appropriations Subcommittee on Economic Development, as well as the Economic Development & Tourism, Human Relations & Aging, Interstate Cooperation and Industry and Labor committees.
